Sunset Heights Reviews

I’ve been living in Sunset Heights for just over 16 years now and I definitely have had some mixed feelings while the area itself is better regarding safety wise in comparison to other parts of Milwaukee’s Northside, it still isn’t completely safe over here. Our family car has been stolen on 3 separate occasions, garage has been broken into, bikes have been stolen, family members have been robbed or beaten up just around the corner. The houses are nice, and the Jewish community make this place safer but Sunset Heights isn’t necessarily a perfect place.
